CHELSEA v Bradford: FA Cup Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday 24 January Kick-off: 15:00 GMT After Liverpool ran themselves ragged to get a draw out of us at Anfield in the League Cup midweek, today it’s the FA Cup and a home game against League One side Bradford. Bradford beat Wigan, Arsenal and Aston Villa on their way to the [...]

Swansea v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Liberty Stadium Date: Saturday, 17 January Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Having won just one of our last five games away from home, we could probably do without another game away from Stamford Bridge but that’s exactly what we’ve got to look forward to with a game at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon. We weren’t great [...]

CHELSEA v Newcastle: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 10 January Kick-off: 15:00 GMT It wasn’t that long ago we lost to Newcastle, yet with barely time to lick our wounds, we’re facing them again just a month later. But whilst our trip to St James’ park signalled the continued run of away games at Newcastle Jose Mourinho has [...]

CHELSEA v Watford: FA Cup Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday 4 January Kick-off: 16:00 GMT After the debacle against Spurs on New Year’s Day, an FA Cup tie against Watford has to be welcome, even if it’s just to give us the opportunity to rest some tired legs. We’d have been forgiven for thinking our players had been on the [...]

Spurs 5-3 CHELSEA: No Defence Offered

I’m not really sure what to say after yesterday’s game. Whilst I agree with Jose in terms of the handball/penalty decision, I don’t think this is a result we could blame anyone but the boss and players for. I don’t understand how we could play in the manner we did and I don’t understand Mourinho’s [...]

Spurs v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: White Hart Lane Date: Thursday 1 January 2015 Kick-off: 17:30 GMT This afternoon’s late game sees us make the short trip to White Hart Lane to take on Spurs in our first game of 2015. We’ll be facing a Spurs side in decent form, unbeaten in their last five and with a point off [...]

Mourinho: A Campaign Against Chelsea

Another game, another penalty claim, another yellow card – it’s a conspiracy I tell you! Flippant? Probably but then whilst I might not agree entirely with Jose on this one in terms of a deliberate ‘campaign’, I certainly didn’t agree with Souness saying Mourinho made a ‘massive’ deal of it ‘to put pressure on the [...]

Southampton 1-1 CHELSEA: No Luck, No Judgement

So, 1-all it finished but given our dominance in the second half and Fabregas’ yellow card for daring to be fouled in the area, we can probably consider ourselves unlucky not to have taken all 3 points at St Mary’s. On the other hand, some say you make your own luck – and we didn’t [...]

Southampton v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: St Mary’s Stadium Date: Sunday 28th December Kick-off: 14:05 GMT This afternoon’s early kick-off sees us travel to St Mary’s for an away fixture against Southampton. The Saints come into this game back up to fourth in the Premier League after their four-game losing streak was put to bed with back to back wins [...]

CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Friday, 26 December Kick-off: 12:45 GMT Today’s early Boxing Day kick-off sees us play host to West Ham. They frustrated us in this fixture early in 2014 when they came and parked their bus, or should that be coach and horses after Jose’s ’19th century’ comments? This time round, West Ham [...]
